Ford’s Theatre and the Ford’s Theatre Museum (514 Tenth St. NW) have both reopened with advance tickets required.

Ford’s Theatre and Museum will operate with a modified schedule for daytime visitation on Wednesdays through Sundays.

Visits to Ford’s Theatre are self-guided but National Park Service rangers will be on hand to answer questions and explain the events surrounding Lincoln’s assassination, though no formal ranger talks will be scheduled during this reopening phase.

Tickets will be available each Friday for the following Wednesday to Sunday. Timed entry to Ford’s Theatre and Museum will be available on the hour from 10 a.m. to noon, and from 2 to 4 p.m.

A maximum number of 25 visitors per hour are permitted in the building during this stage of reopening.

Entry times include walk-through visits to the Ford’s Theatre balcony level and Presidential Box, where the door has been opened for the first time in many years.

The orchestra-level of the theatre will be closed until early June for restoration work. Get more information and tickets at fords.org.
